Atlantic Football League Championship Game Today

Post by hfxbomberfan » Sat Nov 20, 2010 6:44 pm

2010 MooseHead Cup - Atlantic Football League Championship Game

The Saint John Seawolves were victorious today defeating the Dalhousie Tigers (from Halifax) with a lop-sided score of 40-6. It could have been 50-6 if the Seawolves hadn't made a couple minor Offensive mistakes. :good:

Dalhousie just couldn't seem to get the ball out of their own end the entire game. In fact, they had a hard time getting the ball out past their own 30. Size was also a factor in this game. The Seawolves has a much larger team than Dal. It was very noticeable on the field. :helmet: :pass:

For the most part, it was a running game in the 1st quarter due to the snow on the field. The sun came out in the 3rd quarter and the QB's took to the air with some success but the game primarily stayed on the ground. :beauty:

About 500 frozen fans braved the elements to come out to this game. :beauty:

I'd post pictures here if I knew how the hell to do it ?

Go to photobucket.com, make a user, and there is usually a huge "upload pictures" button there.

After that, for each pic, there is a list of different links you can paste to make it appear. Just take the ones with [IMG ] and [/IMG ] and paste them here in a reply!

Thanks Rej. I'll give it a try when I get a chance later on this week. :beauty: :beer:

Is this a sign that UNB St Johns is beginning to get things organized on the Club level enough that coming to the CIS could be a possibility. It would still leave the AUS as the weak conference but at least with 5 teams a somewhat orgniazed scheduled could be made with 8 games each team with a home and home series.

Looking more into the AFL and cooresponding with some of those who run the new league that these teams like the league and wiil not be heading to the AUS CIS football. In fact they are looking to add Cape Breton. They still have football at the school for Homecoming etc. They go with more players fraom the community. Commmunity college players and those who do not attend Univeristyies at all are all eligible to play for both UNB Campus teams. Holland College runs the team but they use the better facilities at UPEI and both Holland and UPEI students and others from the community are eligible to play. Dal is the only team that all player must be enrolled at the University.
If Cape Breton does come in in 2014 they will have more teams then the AUS. AFL teams have also scheduled games against US universities and the cost is way lower than to be a member CIS football program but the same thing is accomplished with football games on sat being a social school and community event.
soon the smaller schools of the AUS who can not get top recruits will not ave to drop their program but can move to the AFL for football instead of losing too much money on football FX and Nount Allison seem to be prime candidates as SMU is coming back stronger than evenr in 2013 and the future and Acadia seems to have got th formula to recruit for a smaller school

I can see Cape Breton coming back into the AUS as they had a team in the 90's. U de Moncton are still studying the possibility of a football program but will have a hard time competing with the Quebec schools that offer lower tuition.

As for Acadia, St.FX, and Mount A leaving the CIS, I don't see that happening. Each one of those team's has come out on top of the AUS football championship before and everything like rebuilding with players and coaches goes in cycles sometimes. Vicious long droughts at times but each team has to deal with changes, no different than pro sports teams.

GO HUSKIES GO ! ! ! :D :yahoo:

I'll have to give ya a minor correction there Steve. It's not UNB St.John's, it's UNBSJ or Saint John. And the answer to the question is no. University of New Brunswick (UNB) is kind of weird. They are split in half with one half in Fredericton and the other half in Saint John. If they were together in the same place they would no doubt have a strong enough student body to be competitive in the AUS.
The probllem with UNB SJ is that the student body there is probably 60% or more foreign students from Asia who have absolutely no idea what football is at all. The players who form the UNB SJ Seawolves are mostlyfrom the local community as long as they are between the ages of 18-24 and are attending some sort of post secondary schooling whether University or Community College.
